    Canada’s First Interactive Digital Storybook




    How has Canadian innovation impacted your organization, community, or your everyday life? The Canada Science and Technology Museums Corporation puts this question to science centres, museums, universities and communities from coast to coast to coast to help build a crowd sourced, engaging and interactive digital storybook of Canadian innovation. As science outreach organizations, 

    CASC members are invited to join our celebration of Canada’s 150th anniversary by contributing stories of STEM innovation that are significant to their organizations, regions, or communities, and that have helped shape the Canadian story of innovation.

    InnovationCanada150.ca is an opportunity to inspire today’s youth, and this country’s future innovators and allow Canadians from across the country to share their unique and fascinating stories of innovation.

    For information or to get involved contact: Maren Hackett at 613-404-6426 or Canada150@techno-science.ca

    Develop your capacity for improving Teaching & Learning, Curriculum & Theory, and Pedagogical Practice.

    Focusing on the study of education and learning that occurs in informal learning contexts such as museums, the program draws together Museum professionals, educators and those with an interest in using the community to support teaching and learning to further their thinking and scholarship around museums as sites of education and learning.

    THE PROGRAM

    The Master of Museum Education is a unique graduate degree program focusing on the study of education and learning that occurs in museums and other informal learning contexts. This program draws together Museum professionals, educators and those with an interest in using the community to support teaching and learning to further their thinking and scholarship around museums as sites of education and learning.

    This program will provide the necessary skills and knowledge for careers as educators in informal settings such as museums, locally and globally, and to support classroom-based teachers in expanding their use of the community as a learning site. The program model is one that recognizes the need for contextualizing museum education curriculum in both home country context (which has its own unique social and political context) and in the Canadian cultural context of museum education, in which practices may be conceptualized in other beneficial ways to that of the student¹s own country of origin. The end result are graduating students that are then better able to influence the systems in their own countries with strengthened capacities to introduce beneficial reforms around museum education.
